MIAMI (AP) - Fresh off a narrow loss in Florida's gubernatorial race, Democrat Alex Sink is expressing some frustration with the White House.
      
Sink calls White House "tone-deaf" in an interview published Saturday on Politico, saying Obama's aides weren't interested in hearing her concerns about Washington's handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill or problems building acceptance for the health overhaul.
      
She says "they just need to be better listeners ad be better at reaching out to people who are on the ground."
      
Sink is Florida's chief financial officer. She lost the governor's mansion by just one percentage point to multimillionaire businessman Rick Scott.
